  • Enter their interior is like traveling through time. Unlike what you might think are not dirty and degraded, hotels and bed and breakfast are springing up to amount given the high flow of tourists. Take on the streets means living Naples its thousands of smells and colors like those of drying laundry or food that good the bargain. access to buildings or underground Naples are a plus, just look at the names of alleys to understand how much story there is. Each lane has a story to tell, stories of Kings, Princes, counts, generals etc. Obvious though entered here in the borgia and is super adrenaline with mopeds and honking cars without Henry. Live them to feel alive
